    Exec. Mgmt. tried to appear to be interested but in reality were not.

    Advice to Management

    there has to be a better way to work with the directors and VPs. Exec mgmt. needs to not only hold everyone accountable but make sure there is some interest in how hard your directors are working.

    I worked at Sanford Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From what I have seen, some employees try very hard to make sure patients don't get lost in the system. Customer service is detailed and complete.

    Cons

    As a Nurse, I have never seen such disrespectful treatment of CNAs by nursing staff. It is like the nurses believe their assistants are butlers for them and not patient care technicians for the patients. They have lost their entire CNA staff three times because of a bullying problem that has yet to be addressed successfully. Some of the nurses run things on a fifth grade political system and if you have too much integrity to buy into it, you become a target as well, whether you are a nurse or a CNA. The nurses sit in clumps of six individuals and gossip about things unrelated to work for hours at a time while the CNAs run circles around them cleaning and caring for patients and yet a brief work-related collaborative discussion between CNAs is broken up and scattered like a slave revolt. It seriously impacts patient care, especially combined with the common dispersion of casual racism that is a frequent topic of discussion. The wages are so low that they do not pay enough for a single person to afford the cost of living in this region and the benefits require you to receive your care from the same staff you work with each day. No thank you! You think this crew will not betray HIPA laws to gossip about your medical history in the break room when you come in to have your appendix out? Think again.

    Advice to Management

    Support the hard working members of the team and discourage lazy behavior that distracts the nurses from working. This kind of bullying requires a firm hand and it needs to be clear from the top down that it is not supported behavior. When you catch someone in the act of belittling a team mate, discourage the behavior! (Mostly I have seen you making excuses for them.) If you do not, the leadership that emerges from such a team will be the nasty ones with no true leadership skills whatsoever. This is already occurring. Don't segregate the team so much into RNs and CNAs. You do this every day. Making the CNAs wash the nurses dishes, clean their rooms, and separate staff meeting into RN and CNAs meetings. Believe it or not, some teams share these duties and they work well together because of it. Each nurse should have to rotate in being a CNA for a day. This is actually not unusual. Plus it would be an educational benefit to a group of nurses that see CNA work as being below them. Since they cannot figure out how to treat their CNAs as team members, they will soon have no choice but to learn to do both jobs because no one wants to work with them anymore. Even some nurses have left because of this dynamic.
